Joy is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist receiving acclaim on contemporary and classical scenes as a musician with depth and unique insight. Her songs are described as 'word paintings' and her musicianship as a violinist 'something you can't teach'.
Classically trained in the North of England and with a love of folk and world music, she explored Manchester's rich alternative music scene alongside her performance degree in violin at the Royal Northern College of Music. From appearing internationally as a singer-songwriter, to collaborative crossover projects and pushing the boundaries of chamber music, Joy is as at home performing her own music at festivals, leading an orchestra or touring with bands.
Joy co-produced her recent EP 'From Within' and features on vocals, guitar, keys, violin and viola. She loves cooking, festivals and Joni Mitchell.
